Synopsis for ‘TRUST’:

Being young is all about the experiences: the first time you skip school, the first time you fall in love…the first time someone holds a gun to your head.

After being held hostage during a robbery at the local convenience store, seventeen-year-old Edie finds her attitude about life shattered. Unwilling to put up with the snobbery and bullying at her private school, she enrolls at the local public high school, crossing paths with John. The boy who risked his life to save hers.

While Edie’s beginning to run wild, however, John’s just starting to settle down. After years of partying and dealing drugs with his older brother, he’s going straight—getting to class on time, and thinking about the future.

An unlikely bond grows between the two as John keeps Edie out of trouble and helps her broaden her horizons. But when he helps her out with another first—losing her virginity—their friendship gets complicated.

Meanwhile, Edie and John are pulled back into the dangerous world they narrowly escaped. They were lucky to survive the first time, but this time they have more to lose—each other.

 

My ‘Blogging Readers ARC-Review’ after reading ‘TRUST’:

“Trust” is the latest novel from Best-selling author Kylie Scott. This story kicks off from the first chapter and stays compelling and entertaining all the way through. This novel definitely touches on a few heavy topics but it delivers in an engaging way. “Trust” is written from the one of the main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of view), Edie Millen.

Edie Millen was having a fun sleepover with her best friend Georgia. They decided to go to the nearby corner store to grab a few snacks dressed in their pajamas. Edie went in alone while Georgia waited in the car. The quick visit the store would turn into a dangerous night for her when someone decides to rob it. She can’t help but fear for her life as she comes to the realization that this may be the end. What she didn’t expect, was that the two other guys in the store with her would risk their lives to try and save them all.

With her outlook on life completely altered, feeling hurt by a decision her best friend Georgia made, Edie makes a decision. She wants to leave her high price private school behind and attend a local public school. Edie finds it hard to care about the things that used to bother her challenge her, like bullies and following the rules. She begins an unlikely bond and friendship with John, the guy who did his best to keep her safe during the store robbery.

John is popular and known around his high school as the go-to-guy for all the wrong things. When his life changes after the robbery and because of his older brother, John decides to do better. He cleans up his act and tries hard to do better in school. Unfortunately, he’s already earned a reputation among his peers and the staff at school. They give him a hard time now that he’s trying to change his life. Edie is in the picture now and she may be just the person to either help his change or add to his problems.

As John and Edie grow a strong bond and a genuine friendship, how will the robbery they experienced together, affect their lives? When Edie comes to John to ask him for a huge favor that could change things, will John see it through or turn her down? Can John save himself and Edie again when they find themselves in a another dangerous situation? “Trust” is a dangerously enthralling story. You’ll find yourself pulled into the lives of the characters, John and Edie, and experience their firsts in a way that will keep your interest and entertain in such a staggering way. I highly recommend this riveting read and the amazing way it touches on heavy topics. If you’re looking for your next read, this one is definitely worth it! ❤

The Synopsis:

EVEN THE BROKEN, THROUGH LOVE, CAN FIND GRACE…

Secrets never stay hidden.

The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart.

Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, as a New Zion whore, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined… with absolutely no one to help. And no glimpse of hope.

Xavier ‘AK’ Deyes is content with his life as Sergeant-At-Arms of the Hades Hangmen. Leader of the infamous ‘Psycho Trio’ and ex-special ops sniper, AK knows how to fight. Experienced in warfare and schooled in military operations, AK is vital to the Hangmen. When his Vice President needs help retrieving his missing sister-in-law, Phebe, from a Klan-funded trafficking ring, AK volunteers to go in. AK remembers the redhead from New Zion. Remembers everything about her from the single time they met—her red hair, blue eyes and freckled face. But when he finds her, heavily drugged and under Meister’s control, her sorry condition causes him to remember more than the beautiful woman he once tied to a tree. Saving Phebe forces hidden demons from his past to return. A past he can never move on from, no matter how hard he tries.

As AK fights to help Phebe, and in turn she strives to help him, they realize their secret sins will never leave them alone. Kindred broken souls, they realize the only way they can be rid of their ghosts is to face them together and try to find peace.

Despair soon turns to hope, and damaged hearts soon start to heal. But when their deep, painful scars resurface, becoming too much to bear, the time comes when they must make a heavy choice: stay forever damned; or together, find grace.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘DAMNABLE GRACE’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #5):

*May contain Character Spoilers(Not story Spoilers) if you haven’t read the previous novels of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

The completely dark and gritty Hades Hangmen MC Series continues with the fifth installment titled “Damnable Grace” by the always amazing and talented author Tillie Cole. This series continues to deliver such depth, raw-emotional dialogue, and a captivating story-line that can break your heart one moment, then revive it fully the next. As always, I will do my best not to ruin any of the plot twists or spoil any of the big moments for you readers. It’s best and more fulfilling to experience it all on your own. This novel follows one of the wild Hangmen trio known as “AK” to his MC brothers and it also follows the cult sister Phebe. The story is written from the three character’s P.O.V.’s (point of views) of Phebe, Xavier “AK” Deyes, and some from Flame.

The Hades Hangmen MC Brothers are out to rescue the sister of one of their old ladies and to bring down the the twisted group who has imprisoned them. The MC must face off against the ruthless Aryan Brotherhood clan that has descended to their part of Texas. AK can’t seem to get the beautiful cult female with the red hair out of his mind. As he and the other Hades Hangmen MC brothers dig deeper into finding out where Phebe is, they discover the very dark place they’ll have to go to in order to bring them down and rescue her. How can they do this dangerous mission without suffering too many risks to the MC? As they plan, it seems  likely that they’ll have to infiltrate in order to bring their sick enemies down.

Phebe had one duty for the commune which was to lure and entice new men to join the cult by seducing them. That was until the cult gave Phebe to their business associate by the name of Meister. The evil and violent commander Meister now owns her in his controlling and terrorizing ways. All Phebe can do is hope that those that she loves are far away from this hell. Will Phebe ever escape her current hell or will she die under the pain she lives daily? How will her past touch her present life and will the truth of that past be destroyed along side of her?

Flame is still Flame. The only person that has been able to break through his dark exterior is Maddie. His newfound little brother Asher means a lot to him since he was found but Flame isn’t familiar with normal feelings and expressions of those feelings. He continues to struggle to get closer to his brother, his only family outside of his biker brothers. With the troubles the Hangmen find themselves facing, he may face that moment. Will he be able to?

The Hades Hangmen MC are violent and vengeful when the situation requires it but now they must face off with something worse. A clan of cruel and brutal racist abusers who see the MC as an enemy. This dark Contemporary Romance will leave you holding on tight to your feelings and take you on a gripping ride! 😉 There is a special little bonus at the end, so definitely be on the look out after Damnable Grace ends. I highly recommend this novel and series. These characters and the story-line constantly grip the readers attention and never lets go until the end. “Damnable Grace” is very dark, heartbreaking and touches on twisted situations but the emotional depth intertwined keeps you wanting to continue their journey. Reader Warning: It touches on sensitive topics such as abuse, sexual assault and some brutal violence. This is such an enthralling series! It’s definitely a Must read! ❤

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, abuse, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics.
Recommended for age 18 years and over.

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM DAMNABLE GRACE’:

Devin (Deyes brothers):  “You got no idea what it’s like out there, X. You got no fucking idea.”
“I wanna fight, Dev. I… I wanna fight for our country, like you. I.. I fucking wanna be like you, Dev. Always have.”
He’d saved us. Pulled us outta the damn gutter.
He was my motherfucking hero.
“I wanted better for you, kid.”
“Fighting alongside you, for our country and freedom? That’s as good as it goddamn gets.”

Phebe to AK:  “You,” she said again, a new lightness in her voice. Her fingers ran over my lips, then up, stopping at my eyes.
“The one with the kind eyes,” she murmured. Her head tilted to the side like an innocent child.
“You would not kill me. I deserved to die, but you would not kill me… because you had kind eyes.
A devil’s man with angel eyes.”

AK and Phebe:  “It ain’t gonna be easy, Red, but you gotta eat something.” He pointed to me. “Right now you’re a bag of bones.”
I gasped as I stared at the girl in the mirror. Her skin was dull and gray.
Red, I thought as I stared back at my reflection. AK had called me “Red“.
The color of my hair.
I startled at the brief flicker of a smile on my lips.
Not Phebe. Not “whore”… but the sheer simplicity of the name Red.

Phebe and AK:  “My freckles. My millions of freckles stand out against my pale skin like neon lights in the fire’s glow. I always disliked them.”
“Look up. Look up at the sky.” I said again. She did.
“There are so many stars,” she whispered.
“Imagine the sky without them.”
“Why would I do that? They make the sky so pretty. They are the reason people stargaze. To see their beauty.”
“Think of your face like the sky. The freckles, the stars, only make the sight more worth looking at.”

AK’s thoughts:  And with every mile made, I let me hatred of Meister build inside me- fuel to this fucking mission. Or massacre, I thought to myself. I’d make him pay, strip his flesh and slice through his guts. And as I looked to my left and right, Flame and Viking by my side, I knew they’d be with me too.

Story Quote: “Live Free. Ride Free. Die Free!”

The Synopsis:

Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.

Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.

He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.

But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.

Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘RIOT’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Scarred Souls Series.***

“Riot” is the forth novel in the Scarred Souls Series by the amazing Author Tillie Cole. This novel delivers emotional depth, a riveting story-line, enthralling characters, and everything we love most about this series. Riot is told from three main character’s P.O.V’s (Point of views) which belong to 152, 901, and Luka.

She is only known as 152. Most of her past is a mystery, her present is questionable, and her future is uncertain especially now that she’s become the “Mona” to a ruthless and dangerous man they call Master. Small flashes of memories surface in 152’s mind but still she can’t piece together where she’s from or who she really is. All she can do as try to survive the dark life that she is forced to live. Will her life always be controlled by the hands of the sadistic Master? Will she be able to survive this empty and painful life or is there more to her story?

901 is Master’s winning fighter. He brings violence, pain, and death to everyone who enters The Blood Pit to face off with him. 901 knows he holds a little control as the Master’s prized fighter but he never gives Master what he wants, which is to draw out the fights so they last long enough to be entertaining. Master must give his possession that is obsessed with to his prized money-maker to make sure his evil Kingdom stays strong. The evil Master never expected what comes next. Will 901 be able to resist the threat Master sends his way? Can 901 survive the ultimate fight of his life?

Luka Tolstoi was known as “818” and fought till the death, once upon a time. Now, his life consists of family and the love of his life, his pregnant wife Kisa. He has become a leader and close friend, practically brothers, with Zaal and Valentin who also knew the life in the gulag and the dark underground world they escaped. Between the three, they must come up with the greatest plan to rescue Valentin’s sister from that underground world and destroy that world once and for all. It won’t be easy. It will actually be very dangerous and difficult, but they are family and this family will do anything they can for each other. When faced with the mission ahead, Luka as well as Zaal and Valentin might just have to revive their inner beasts in order to bring down the Master, once and for all. Will Luka be able to turn on the beast inside without losing himself to it completely? Will their plan work or are they destined to fall?

In the final installment of the Scarred Souls Series, we get to know two more beautiful, broken, and scarred souls simply known by the numbers that were given to dehumanize them.  We still get to hear from Luka, Kisa, Talia, Zaal, Zoya, and Valentin from the previous novels of the series. Valentin is determined to rescue his sister from the evil imprisonment that he and the other two former fighters escaped from. In order to rescue his sister they must come up with a plan. On top of that they all want to put an end to that twisted underground world and bring down Master once and for all. I highly recommend this novel and this series! It’s so dark and twisted, but the raw emotional journey these characters take make you crave to see them rise above the life they were forced to live for so long and defeat that darkness. You should definitely read this one asap! It’s so worth it!

**Content Warning**: Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains explicit sexual situations, excessive violence, offensive language and mature topics. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘INFATUATION’ (Knights Rebels MC Series book #4):

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novels of the Knights Rebels MC Series.***

This is my review for the forth installment in the Knights Rebels MC Series titled “Infatuation” by Author River Savage. This series continues to follow the world revolving the motorcycle club’s characters and the ladies in their lives. This novel finds itself following the story of Mackenzie “Kenzie” and MC Vice President Beau. Kenzie has returned to the clubhouse months after Beau helped her to escape a bad situation. Unfortunately, that bad situation may have gotten worse than before.  Infatuation is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views)  of Mackenzie “Kenzie” Morre and MC V.P. Beau McIntyre.

Mackenzie was in love, or so she thought. Her relationship with Chad started off like any normal relationship but after a while, it began to sour into a terrible violent situation. Her world would go from having what she thought was a loving relationship with Chad Morre, the son of Mayor Morre, to something she had to struggle to survive and eventually she would find herself trying hard to flee.
When Beau helped Mackenzie escape from the abusive relationship she was in eighteen months ago, they never thought that they’d see each other again. The biker brother with a soft spot for helping the defenseless and the young lady who wanted to find a love that wouldn’t cost her emotional and physical pain, are once again reunited. Now, eighteen months later and Mackenzie’s ex-abusive-husband Chad, has found her and she had to fight to survive and escape him once again. She had no where to turn now that she was on the run except back to the Knight Rebels Clubhouse where the one man who made her feel safe again and helped her escape before, an MC brother by the name of Beau McIntyre.

Beau never thought he’d see Mackenzie again after helping her disappear from her ex but he never forgot her either. When Mackenzie “Kenzie” shows up one night at the clubhouse, he knew he couldn’t turn her away no matter who was after her. He knew that this would cause problems from his President aka best friend Nix and the club, but he didn’t care. He wanted to protect Kenzie and help her out even if it’s from someone who is the son of someone in power like his father.
There are many twist and turns in the storyline but they flow amazingly. The emotional journey of survival, overcoming the past, and fighting for happiness is beautifully delivered between the imperfect characters Kenzie and Beau. The sexy, dark-protectiveness of the deeply loyal MC brother Beau makes him so irresistable and I don’t doubt he will be an MC favorite. Kenzie has some heavy secrets and uncertainties in her life but she still fights to put her best foot forward through it all, which is so admirable.

Will Mackenzie “Kenzie’s” husband Chad Morre find her again and finish what he started once and for all? Can Beau truly protect Kenzie or will it damage his relationship with his MC brothers? What other heavy secret is Mackenzie keeping to herself? And will she ever be able to get in contact with the only friend she had through the dark times – Heidi? This story is gritty but well written even through the difficult topics it touches on. I do recommend “Infatuation” and this entire powerful series because the characters are wickedly-incredible and the story-lines are mind-blowing and great! Please Note: Infatuation discusses tough topics about domestic abuse and may not be easy to read for some. Just know, River Savage created a touching story for Kenzie and Beau’s characters’. You definitely should add this dark yet remarkable novel to your “Must Read” list for sure! 🙂

The Synopsis for ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’:

Fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, K. Bromberg, and Joanna Wylde will be unable to resist this sexy, deeply intimate tale of a woman running from her past, and the darkly mysterious man who sets her free.

I didn’t think answering someone else’s cellphone would change my life. But the stranger with the low, deep voice on the other end of the line tempted me, awakened my body, set me on fire. He was looking for someone else. Instead he found me.

And I found a hot, secret world where I felt alive for the first time.

His name was Dylan, and, strangely, he made me feel safe. Desired. Compelled. Every dark thing he asked me to do, I did. Without question. I longed to meet him, but we were both keeping secrets. And mine were dangerous. If I took the first step, if I got closer to Dylan—emotionally, physically—then I wouldn’t be hiding anymore. I would be exposed, with nothing left to surrender but the truth. And my truth could hurt us both.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘EVERYTHING I LEFT UNSAID’ by Molly O‘Keefe:

I was granted the chance to check out this new novel and here is my honest review after reading a copy of “Everything I Left Unsaid”, the first novel of a new series by Author Molly O’Keefe. This is the first novel I’ve read from this author and I have to say that I’m very interested in reading more, especially from this new series. This comes from the Adult genre as well as Contemporary Romance, Suspense and Erotic Romance genres and it definitely delivers in those expected needs. Readers will get to read the story through the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Annie McKay and Dylan Daniels.

Annie McKay grew up on a huge farm in Oklahoma, raised by her mother who never really showed affection or love which causes Annie to not have a normal loving relationship with her mother. All Annie grew up knowing was the farm life and not much else. The only real friend she had growing up was an older man by the name of “Smith” who also met the needs of a father figure for Annie. When her mother ends up passing away, Annie is left with a huge farm to tend to and not one clue on how to truly run it. At this time, an employee on the farm, a man named Hoyt steps up and offers to give her the help she needs. Everything seemed to be going well and eventually they marry, against Smith’s warnings. Annie didn’t want to be alone and was afraid of trying to run the farm all by herself, so she gave into Hoyt and his overly helpful ways. Not long after, Annie realizes the huge mistakes she’s made since the moment she allowed Hoyt to be such an intricate part of her life. He’s controlling, manipulative, violently-abusive and cold as ice with her. Her life became a numbing seclusion from everyone around. After one terrible night, Annie decides to flee with only a few thousand dollars and a new look to hide who she is.

Annie finds herself as a new resident in a seedy little place named Flowered Manor Trailer Park and Camp Ground in a random small town inside of North Carolina. She’s colored her hair, from the usual natural redlocks and is determined to stay hidden, just in case. Upon moving in, she comes across a cell phone as it begins to ring. Hesitantly, she answers. The voice on the other end of the line becomes a whole mysterious, highly seductive and potentially dangerous person that she did not expect.

Dylan Daniels grew up with their father named Ben and a mother named Maria. His mother was a beautiful and caring woman but his father was something else. He used to make him and his older brother Max feel like they were never good enough and needed to toughen up. Despite his childhood and teen years of getting into trouble with Max, he grew up to be cold, with a drive to succeed. After an accident changed his life in a way, he began to go in a different direction. The scars of life still influence his life deeply. So deeply that he now lives up high at a mountain top, practically secluded from society and has no plans on changing his ways. That is…until he makes one phone call and hears the voice on the other end that may actually become a threat to his stubborn ways.

When Annie decides to hide the truth about herself, will she ever regain her identity as Annie or will she get lost in the fake new persona of “Layla?” What dark secrets is Dylan keeping about himself? Will Annie and Dylan give into their growing sexual tensions or are they both destined to be on the run from their past emotional issues? Will their pasts’ ever catch up to them? This novel was very enjoyable with the dark, suspenseful, erotic and dramatic storyline. The female character, Annie, seems broken yet strong in some ways because she’s a survivor and a fighter deep down inside. Dylan, the main male character, is sexy, dark and mysterious, but you can tell he is carrying some major emotional baggage but still he can’t hide that he can be a truly caring person. Note: There is mention of abuse from Annie’s past relationship with Hoyt and mature sexual content in this novel. I do recommend this novel because it really was compelling and telling in many entertaining moments. It’s worth checking out, if you’re looking for a new series to try out. Check this one out, readers! 🙂

The Synopsis:

“For fractured souls are like magnets.
Drawn to collide into an impossible bliss…”

Labeled a ‘Cursed’ woman of Eve from birth, Maddie has endured nothing but pain and repression at the hands of The Order’s most abusive elder, Moses. Now living with her sister in The Hangmen’s secluded compound, finally, Maddie, is free. Free from the suffocating faith she no longer believes in. Free from endless years of physical and mental torment.

Just… free…

At age twenty-one, the timid and shy Maddie is content to live within the confines of her new home—safe from the outside world, safe from harm and, strangely, protected by the Hangmen’s most volatile member; the heavily pierced and tattooed, Flame.

Flame.

The man who ceaselessly watches over her with his midnight dark and searing eyes. The man who protects her with a breath-taking intensity. And the man who stirs something deep within her numbed heart.

But when circumstances conspire for Flame to need HER help, Maddie bravely risks it all for the broken man who has captivated her fragile soul.

The Hangmen’s most infamous member, Flame, is ruled by one thing—anger. Plagued by haunting demons from his past, an all-consuming rage, and isolated by an abhorrent hatred of being touched, Flame’s days are filled with suffocating darkness, pierced only by a single ray of light—Maddie. The shy, beautiful woman he cannot purge from his thoughts. The woman he has an overwhelming need to possess…
… the only person who has ever been able to touch him.

Flame’s mission in life is to protect Maddie, to keep her safe. Until a trigger from his troubled past sends him spiraling into madness, trapping him in the deepest recesses of his disturbed mind.

His Hangmen brothers fear that Flame is beyond saving.

His only hope of salvation: Maddie and her healing light.

Dark Contemporary Romance.

Content warning: Contains explicit sexual situations, violence, disturbingly sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language, and very mature topics.
Recommended for age 18 years and over.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘SOULS UNFRACTURED’ (Hades Hangmen Series book #3):

*May contain Spoilers if you haven’t read the first novel of the Hades Hangmen Series.*

This is the third installment of the Hades Hangmen Series by Author Tillie Cole titled “Souls Unfractured.” This is my honest review for this novel that I was gifted an ARC in order to share my true feelings on this book. I’ve been very anxious to read Flame’s story simply because his character is so raw and different but there’s just something about him that draws readers in. The story continues where the 2nd novel left off. Two very different worlds, one being a motorcycle club that deals in dangerous and illegal business and the other, a secluded cult of people now ruled by the newly chosen Prophet Cain, a former infiltrator and brother of the MC, formerly known as Rider. The story is told in three character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views): MC brother Flame, former cult member Maddie, and former MC brother Rider now known as “Prophet Cain”.

We were introduced earlier in the series to a violent and different character named Flame, who is known for his love of knives, cutting and bloodshed. He is a brother of the Hades Hangmen MC and will do anything to protect his brothers no matter how crazy it may seem. Flame’s history is a secret, even to his closest brothers in the MC, AK and Viking. Even though they have no idea about what kind of dark and sordid past Flame lived, they accept him as one of their own. What they don’t know is that Flame’s backstory is truly dark, heartbreaking, violent, and horrible but somehow he’s found a way to survive past it in his own twisted way. Being a part of a sometimes violent biker MC is the perfect fit for a guy like Flame.

When Mae and the Hades Hangmen MC charged into the horrendous cult grounds to rescue her biological sister who is younger than Mae by a few years named Maddie and also Lilah who is their cult-sister through their cult life. All three were referred to as “The Cursed” because of their natural beauty, they were always treated differently in disgusting ways. This was accepted because of the twisted beliefs that were instilled into them through their cult lifestyle. Maddie was treated the worst by Brother Moses because of his cruel views and practices. Now that she has been rescued from Brother Moses, who took pleasure in her pain and his control over her, who was finally dead at the hands of the silent MC brother named Flame, she felt like she owed him so much. Flame released her from the nightmarish control of Brother Moses and even though most people steer clear of Flame, Maddie is drawn to him. Something about him makes her feel safe and cared for when she is near him. And something is driving Flame to be completely protective and want to make sure to be near her and keep her safe. Maddie and Flame have a strange yet interesting connection but there’s definitely something beautiful, raw and intense between these two.

The cult has revived itself in a new land that is huger and more progressive in it’s ways under Prophet Cain, formerly known as “Rider” of the MC. Prophet Cain was chosen as the cult’s new leader after the death of their former leader. He takes on the duties but still seems to find himself torn between the lifestyle he lived when he infiltrated the MC and the lifestyle of the cult he comes from. It begins to make Prophet Cain(Rider) question certain rules and practices within the cult, which seems to make his most trusted cult-brother(his twin brother) Judah begin to wonder about his brother and his position as their leader. Cain(Rider) can’t seem to completely get passed his old feelings for Mae, who was supposed to be promised to him through their cult even though she left the cult and is now with Styx. Prophet Cain will be faced with difficult decisions and questions of where his loyalties lie. 

There are so many strong emotional moments and tough situations that will make readers truly hope to see some real sunshine after the storms for these characters. Will Maddie and Flame get passed their strong connection or will they get sucked into each other completely? What will Prophet Cain do when he comes face to face with Mae again? How will Cain handle it when he finds out other aspects within the cult he has been chosen to lead? What secrets await for Flame and the past that still tortures and haunts him? Can Maddie ever truly trust a man again and will she ever find peace? This series continues the dark and raw tones that captivate you with well-written characters and brutal depths that tug at your mind and heart. Tillie Cole never disappoints. This is very powerful and compelling while being very unique with the dark tones of the MC world and the cult’s twisted lifestyle dynamics. I definitely recommend this novel and look forward to the next novels coming in this amazing series! This is a Must Read for sure!

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘SOULS UNFRACTURED’

Flame and Maddie:  Eleven.
I’d gone past eleven.
The little bitch’s arms tightened around my waist and I looked down in shock.
“Thank you,” she whispered and pressed her cheek against my chest. “Thank you so very much.”
My lungs froze as she thanked me. And I didn’t understand. Like always. I didn’t fucking understand anything.
Why wasn’t she hurt from my touch?
Why was she fucking thanking me?

Maddie and Flame:  “I couldn’t stay away.”
My pulse raced at his response and I whispered, “Why?”
“I couldn’t stop thinking about you. And I…” Flame trailed off.
“And what?” I pushed.
“I needed to be near you. I needed to know you were safe.”

Maddie’s thoughts:  But what took my breath was the fact that his looming presence did not fill me with dread and fear. Because this man before me, the one my soul loved, was my safety. The man with whom I could only ever be this free and trusting. The man who was mending my fractured soul.

“Prophet Cain’s” thoughts: “I am Prophet Cain. I am the destined Prophet of The Order. And I have a war to prepare for.”

Flame and Maddie: “But I fucking want you, Maddie. I want you as mine. Fully fucking mine.”
She kissed me softly, then promised against my lips, “We will find a way, Flame. As I need to belong to you too. If it is possible to belong to you more than I already do.”

Raised as a prototype for the Georgian Bratva’s obedience drug, 221 fails to think, act or live for himself; his master’s perfectly-crafted killing puppet. Standing at six foot six, weighing two-hundred and fifty pounds, and unrivaled in to-the-death combat, 221 successfully secures business for, the Georgian Mafiya Boss of NYC, in the dark world of the criminal underground. Until his enemies capture him.

Talia Tolstaia dreams to break from the heavy clutches of Bratva life. She dreams of another life-away from the stifling leash of her Russian Bratva Boss father and from the brutality of her work at The Dungeon–her criminal family’s underground death match enterprise. But when she stumbles upon her family’s captive who is more monster than man, she starts to see the man underneath. A powerful, beautiful, damaged man whose heart calls to hers.

But sacrifices must be made–blood for blood… life for life… Souls for scarred souls…
